Who We Think We Are - by Bob Atkinson


Who We Think We Are
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

wildness of words portends
some future life event
where buildup gives in to love
and future chips get spent

so, here in my later years
I think of events past
where things I thought were temporary
weren't such, they lasted

and permanents would seem
endless in their nature
but disappeared without a trace
as endurance, for them, wasn't natural

so goes with our self image
we see ourselves not much
evolved with open ended dreams
and stately aged crust

to flutter on toward immortality
was once our greatest dream
then we find perpetuality
not in the scheme of things

finding we in our hearts
did all the best we could
transfers to reality
of assimilation in a world

a world of like minded souls
who work with what they have
hoping, in the end
they've done something grand
